Confirmed over at marvelousnews.com (http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?itemid=14299), Hasbro Toy Shop will be putting up their San Diego Comic Con exclusives tomorrow, Tuesday 7/26/11.
No time was confirmed, so get your F5 finger ready from midnight on. They did say “morning”.
Listed below is a mostly complete list of all planned comic releases for 7/27/11. This list is subject to change and is not assumed to be entirely complete until all releases are actually in store.
Amazing Spider-Man #666 (Mike Del Mundo Regular Cover), $3.99
In a stroke of pure sanity, during the Hasbro Marvel panel, Hasbro let slip that the SDCC exclusive Sentinel colored in purple and dark purple may very likely be coming to retail. My MU addict brethren and I have been up in arms since the initial exclusive announcement. The exclusive is made with the colors of the Sentinel we all grew up with, while the retail release sentinel was planned to be the newer, less loved, silver and purple. This is good news Marvel Universe fans!
With Fear Itself coming to the end of it’s run, we will see a lot of changes in the Marvel Universe. One of those changes that I’m most thankful for is a brand spankin’ new Defenders team and series.
Marvel has been teasing the new defenders for a few months now, and as of SDCC 2011, the teasing and mystery is done. Matt Fraction will be helming the new Defenders series. No news on the premise as of yet.
Fantastic news from San Diego this weekend. Hasbro held their Marvel Panel on Saturday. They gave us a ton of news about a ton of new figures adding to the Marvel Universe toy line (3 3/4). They also gave us a roster for the relaunch of Marvel Legends (6 inch). The lineups are listed below and are in addition to the already announced Marvel Universe wave 16 featuring Magneto, Absorbing Man (and variant), Astonishing Wolverine, Helmetless Iron Man, and Ice Man.
